We are so pleased to announce a new community initiative! The Dalhousie Community Club is “a neighbourly club where we do fun things!”

Once a month, join us for fun, conversation and exploration. The club is for anyone 18+.

There is no limit to what we might do: sometimes it will be an interesting lecture, or a fun activity or a creative craft. Always, it will be a chance to connect with your neighbours and have fun!

Activities will be free or cheap for DCA members.  Guests will be charged $5-$10 depending on the activity. Proceeds will go towards club and community activities (like the Community Pantry we’re trying to implement).

To register, click on the registration link below. To ask a question or suggest an activity for the Community Club, please email

We’d also love to hear from you if we can help make an activity more accessible to you.
